When I was 22 years old, I turned my life upside down and survived what the media called the "Halloween murder". I was thrown into the unknown, and little did I know that this was going to be a rewarding and exciting journey in mental health.
After 20 stab wounds, 3 surgeries and 11 days in a coma, the most difficult period in my life began. I had to get back to everyday life and gain control of myself.
On this journey I found tools and reflections that formed the basis for book publishing and a career as a lecturer. Today I am left as a reflective and outgoing person, who loves and is passionate about mental health, which I think is talked about and focused too little on.
My name is Marius Løken, a lecturer with
Focus on mental health
I am interested in what you can actually do something with and the tools I convey are concrete. My story gives me an exciting framework to tell about everything I have learned and take the audience on a journey in mental health.
I adapt the lectures to both business, schools and organizations.
Since I have a strong history in my luggage, it is important for me to use a lot of humor, the right energy and a twinkle in my eye when I communicate, and I want it to always be part of my brand.
The most important thing I can contribute is to facilitate good reflections, concrete tools and provide an entertaining atmosphere whether it is at a seminar, in the classroom or on a subject day. It all starts at an individual level, whether you are building a work culture, team morale or getting a class to stick together.
The essence of my lectures
As a lecturer, I combine a strong story with good speaking skills, a lot of humor, energy, reflections and tools.
How to use hormones strategically
Humor as a tool
Control of the inner voice
The close interplay between physical and mental health
Our connection to others
Routines when things are tough
Marius Løken har en sterk og helt spesiell historie. Denne formidler han med en energi og et engasjement få kan måle seg med. Marius får salens oppmerksomhet fra første øyeblikk og tar publikum med på en emosjonell berg-og dalbane, hvor både tårer og latteren sitter løst. Humor er et viktig moment i hans reise fra å snu motgang til medgang. I hans foredrag får du vite hvilke verktøy han har tatt i brukt for å komme tilbake sterkere enn noen gang. Anbefales!

A night in october
The story behind the Halloween-case
On the night of Sunday 30 October 2011, a 22-year-old man crashed out of an apartment building on Bislett in Oslo with 20 life-threatening stab wounds to his body. From the sidewalk, he threw himself into a random car that drove him to the nearest hospital. While Marius Løken was in a coma, the newspaper front pages were filled with eerie details and speculations about what was to become one of Norway's most talked about murder cases. But only two people knew what had really happened - Marius and the man who had almost killed him.
